Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 3:2


3:2 At the door - Not on the north - side of the altar, where the burnt - offering was killed, as also the sin - offering, and the trespass - offering, but in the very entrance of the court where the brazen altar stood, which place was not so holy as the other; as appears both because it was more remote from the holy of holies, and because the ashes of the sacrifices were to be laid here. And the reason of this difference is not obscure, both because part of this sacrifice was to be waved by the hands of the offerer, #Lev 7:30|, who might not come into the court; and because this offering was not so holy as the others, which were to be eaten only by the priest, whereas part of these were eaten by the offerer.

    Did anyone notice that the burnt offering for atonement had to be a male without blemish and the peace offering could be either a male or female without blemish?
  • GeraldineCole
    Praise Jesus the One who was sent to die in our Place. We do not need to allow our children to die and Jesus is only anger with The wicked every day why because their thought are not about him nor do they want him .they are the childern of Satan . Another thing we are not to eat fat meat or bloody meat. Serving Jesus is the answer .read the bible don't follow Man follow Jesus .and pray

    IT IS GODS WILL THAT WE SHOULD OBEY. I MIGUEL.A.COTRICH OBEY GODS WILL WHEN HE GAVE ME SOME THING TO TESTIFIED A TESTIMONY THAT HE GAVE ME TO TESTIFIED OF HOW THIS GOVERNMENT WAS GOING TO BE CORRUPTED I NEVER REJECTED JESUS CHRIST SIGN, AND I PAYED THE PRICE BY BECOMING TOTALLY, AND PERMANETLY DISABLED. I DO NOT REGRET ANY THING THAT I DID FOR JESUS CHRIST.IT SHOULD SIMPLY TELL US THAT GODS IS JUST NOT INTERESTED IN OUR SERVICES, AND OFFERINGS BUT RATHER INTERESTED IN THE QUALITY OF SERVICE, AND OFFERING WE GIVE HIM. IF WE WANT GOD TO HONOUR, AND ACCEPT OUR LIVES, SERVICE, AND OFFERING,THEN THEY MUST BE WITH OUT BLEMIST OR SPOT OF BLAME,THEY MUST BE FREE OF SIN, AND FREE OF SINFUL MOTIVES OR DISPOSITION BUT HOLY, AND WHOLLY OFFERED YIELDED UNTO THE LORD. THIS WHAT GOD DEMANDS FROM US ROMANS 12: VRS 1-2. EVERY OFFERING OR EVERY THING THAT IS FOR THE LORD IS THE MOST ABOVE ALL. AND OUR HEART SHOULD BE CENTERED HIM AS WE PRAISE HIM ALSO IN TIME OF OUR GIVEN.I MIGUEL.A.COTRICH DID ALL OF THIS, AND MY HEART IS CENTER ON JESUS CHRIST MY PROOF IS I DID NOT REJECTED JESUS CHRIST FOR MY SON, AND HE IS MAD ABOUT THAT.
  • Joseph Appiah
    Once again, we see the repetitive demand of the LORD for an offering without blemish in verses 1 and 6 of this chapter. This was demanded in chapter 1 vrs 3 and is repeated twice in this chapter and other places in the Bible. It should simply tell us that God is not just interested in our services and offerings but rather interested in the quality of service and offering we give Him. If we want God to honour and accept our lives, services and offerings, then they must be without blemish or spot of blame, they must be free of sin and free of sinful motives or disposition but holy and wholly offered and yielded unto the LORD. This is what God demands and requested of us in Romans 12 vrs 1 and 2. I pray God helps us to honour and meet His demand for our lives in Jesus name, Amen. God richly bless you all.
  • Jona
    every offering or everything that is for the Lord is the most best above all.and our heart should be centered on Him as we praise Him also intime of our giving.
  • Margaret
    It us God s will We must obey
